clinton suggested that the consulate attack in benghazi involved the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa it was like will goly the work of the terrorist group. that admission led to many questions what took the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist attack that killed four americans is an inconvenient truth for a president that claims to be destroying al-qaeda. but it's not too much to ask why the administration has taken so long to state what appeared obvious on what really happened on september 11th, 2012. we're a back with our panel. so given all that we've learned in the last couple of weeks. how big a security failure was that attack on the consulate? >> it was far bigger than this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy and attacks on the u.s. consulate, too. there were reports out of benghazi. u.s. issued a statement in aug

hillary clinton stepped off that narrative herself. when she was at the united nations, also said that they knew that al-qaeda had been active in the arabian peninsula. it seems to me that the secretary of state is distancing herself from the white house was saying because if it comes out later in an investigation that the white house or ambassador rice was withholding information about what happened when they knew it there is going to be a problem for this administration. >> paul: just to be clear here. ambassador rice reports to hillary clinton. she is technically part of the state department operations. she made the most clear statements about the association with the video and refused to acknowledge whether or not it was a terrorist attack? >> we don't know who was calling the shots. we do know what they were saying breaks into two separate parts. what they've been saying now suggests they did know early on that al-qaeda was involved in that. i suspect that is probably one of the reasons ambassador stevens was getting active there. it was well known to people in libya that isl

of them. people are saying obama hasn't debated for a long time. he came out of nowhere beat the clinton machine. i think he is going to be strong. i think his one weak point is that he is thin skinned. if romney can manage to get under his skin in some way i think that actually happened in 08 one or two of the clinton debates. i think it could sort of puncture that aura as that obama had. i don't think there is any way you could be decisive. one thing that will help romney is always true of the challenger just being on the same stage as the president instantly raises your stature. i think if he can hold his own and perhaps prevail even to a minor extent he will reverse the momentum which has been rather negative. >> the first debate takes place tomorrow october 3rdrd. our coverage starts not a minute later p.m. meg begin k megan kelly bret bal be there live. >>> you need your first degree weather update who has rain in the east. >> good morning. good morning everyone. we are talking about rain across the east unfortunately today will be a muggy day out here. a lot of humidity and also s
